Quick Start Guide

Welcome to the Network of Executive Women’s online community.  We are so glad to have you.  Let’s get started.

1. Sign in.
If you haven’t already done so, sign in using the upper right hand navigation button. Having problems signing in? Contact community@newonline.org.

2. Tell us about yourself.
Fill out your profile either manually or by importing your information via LinkedIn. The more content you share about yourself, the easier it will be for peers to connect with you. 

3. Customize your profile settings. While on your profile page, click on the tab for MY ACCOUNT.  Here you can set up how you want to receive emails from the community, how much of your profile you want visible to other members, design the signature area that appears under your discussion posts and more.  If you have any questions about what a certain setting means, please email the Community Manager at community@newonline.org for help. 

Email Deliverability Options: Your frequency can be in the form of a daily digest- a single email each day summarizing the hottest topics in your community, or stay information in real time with instant alerts.
